This week it was rumoured that Carla Bruni and Katie Holmes are both rumoured to be pregnant this week. It seems normal that the press focus on these women, scrutinising their pregnancies and probably putting a huge amount of stress on thes women.
As more women are loosing babies later in pregnancy this article in The Daily Mail. Kelly Brook, Amanda Holden and Lily Allen have all lost babies in the later stages of pregnancy. The article discusses whether or not discussions around miscarriage and still birth are more open then older generations. In the current day it seems that women are more likely to discuss what has happened to them rather than hide away – a sign of strength or independance. I’m not completely sure.
However a great campaign called Count The Kicks is gaining momentum everyday within social media. This great campaign encourages mums to be to ensure they are aware of their unborn child and not to shy away from highlighting if they think something is wrong with their bump. The website offers guidance to women as well as fundraising to push more momentum to their campaign.
Please follow Count The Kicks on twitter and share the link so hopefully more mothers can recognise the signs they may need medical help earlier.
